Plus 1 and dry when driving in.

Firstly this is not good news..

Yesterday was a day full of disappointments.. Nothing that happened with my runners went according to plan and frankly bar the snide remarks from irate punters via emails I would be happy to forget that I even went to Newbury... Where amazingly it was nearly good ground..

Commodore Barry was never at the races. Does He Know decided he did not want to be and Shanacoole Prince was plain not fast enough on the ground to be..Not his fault..

Does He Know was just plain naughty..

A big thank you to Ben Pauling.. Realising that I was going to struggle to leg David Bass onto Does He Know, who was doing a good impersonation of trying to steam roller me.. Ben vaulted over the rails and legged up Bassy, and then survived what DHK tried to do to him..

Thanks Ben .. Youthful..

All three horses seem OK this morning so there will be another day..

David Bass, Chester Williams, Ciaran Gethings and Harry Beswick in this morning.. Not a huge amount going on..

We do though have a runner.. our last of 2020.. Equus Dreamer runs in the last jump race of the year at Taunton and for my thoughts on his chances please click here.

Cheltenham looks like being off on New Years Day..

Now we wait to see, and hear, what Boris says tonight?
